Holding Space

To help another we need to ensure first that we have the capacity to hold their emotions, sometimes hold them until they are able to manage themselves. Make sense of these muddled emotions, process them and give them back in a way they can be understood and worked through. To do this, we need to ensure we are well prepared and able to to act as a safe container. Because if someone puts their trust in us to help, we need to make sure our container is water tight.
